After spending a few days in Almaty and Bishkek, it was so nice to breath clean, crisp air again.
We actually weren't planning to stay thru until sunset, but the cable car was halted for a long time because of strong winds. So we just kept enjoying the scenery. Thank goodness for uber to take us back to our hotel after descending so late. The first time I visited the first generation iPhone was only just released....
Seeing the marine iguanas was one of my favorite dives. The surge was absolutely ripping and there was soot and debris all over the place making photography difficult, but was still able to get a few shots.
All three times I've been in Oslo it was always for a half day (one night) layover. I've always loved the city, but its a shame I never really explored it. This was my most recent visit, arriving in the afternoon and flying out first thing in the morning.
So we were married in the continental US in 2012. Unfortunately, we were still living apart at the time (My wife in New York, me in Tokyo). Also, we had just burned through a lot of our savings and vacation days on the wedding. It would have been a bit sad to split and back to Tokyo/NY right after the wedding, so we sneaked in a quick 4.5 day trip to Hawaii.
This was a brief stop at the end of one of our days in Bhutan, right before heading back to the hotel for the evening. Bhutan is so incredibly photogenic everywhere, just simply an amazing place to visit.
